That's a super efficient way, thanks. I never remember to use the dodge tool, but this was a great reminder of how useful it can be.

Yeah, it's a really helpful tool when neccessary. Bad when overused.

Not really. Mecha armor doesn't behave the same way beetle shells does, but the technique is pretty similiar.
